? or--or religion--how--how can religion help to reinvigorate american democracy? or schools--what can the school--what role can schools play in--in trying to fix this problem? c-span: what is the status of religion? >> guest: religion is--as a whole, religious participation is down, as everything else is, in terms of social connections. down about, oh, 25 percent over the last--that is, take going to church, for example, is down by about 25 percent over the last 25, 30--30 years. but, obviously, there are some parts of the religious spectrum that have had ena--enormous growth during this period. and there are others that have had substantial falls. i mean, the mainline protestant churches, for example, and--and--and--and attendance at mass among catholics, has dropped off a lot. but that's t--partially offset by the growth and participation in evangelical communities. and what we were talking about in the saguaro seminar was, well, ok, su--suppose we were to have a--another one of these what people call great awakenings, which we've had periodically in american history, where people b
more. and we will even get rid of them. but the catholics said that we think religion has to be crucial. we cannot separate these two. and we even need to have the readings under the direction of the public schools be a part of this. and we can have an integrated religious education. and neither side could see the merit from the other side and it was again highly contentious and it tore apart communities throughout the 19th century on how to resolve these issues. the supreme court first entered this debate about school prayer in 1948 in a case dealing with release time. it's actually an interesting modification as a way of kind of accommodating all groups. and let us put aside the time during the day, and we will allow each religious community to bring in one of their teachers and administrators from the children of that faith. and that became a common practice for the first part of the 20th century. and in the north and the west as well, it became a common thing. the supreme court heard a case on that of the first true modern case and they found not to be unconstitutional because it wa
against gays on the basis of religion. but iowa congressman steve king is still defending that law. why? king says that sex orientation is what he calls self-professed behavior. and therefore he says business owners might not know just who they can or cannot discriminate against. >> it's clear in the civil rights section of the code that you can't discriminate against people based upon -- i'm not sure i got the list right, but race, creed, religion, color of skin, those kind of things. and there is nothing mentioned in there on self-professed behavior. the one thing i reference when i say self-professed is how do you know who to discriminate against? they have to tell you. and are they then setting up a case? is this about bringing a grievance or is it actually about a service they would like to have. >> so what mr. king is saying there is that customers could claim to be gay just to entrap business owners into discriminating against them so they could then seek legal reparations. here is a further question. is religion not by his wording also self-professed? >>> finally, "12 years a sl
